Henry Pyrgos joined Glasgow Warriors in summer 2010 after taking leave from a chemistry degree at Loughborough University to pursue his rugby ambitions.
He had his breakthrough year in 2012 when his classic scrum-half skills propelled him into the Scotland squad and he looks set to have a meaningful presence in the Warriors squad for some time to come.
His form in his debut campaign saw him win selection for the Scotland A team, who went through season 2010/11 undefeated. In February 2012.
Pyrgos made his Scotland debut as a second-half substitute for Mike Blair against New Zealand in the first EMC Test of 2012. The same switch was made in the next game against South Africa in which Pyrgos scored his first try for Scotland. He made his first start for Scotland in the third EMC Test of 2012 against Tonga at Pittodrie.
Outwith rugby, he has played for West of England at hockey (under-15) and Dorset at cricket (under-17). His father played rugby for Harlequins and Loughborough Students, and his mother represented England at under-21 hockey.
Henry is a former pupil of Bryanston School in Dorset.
